"But" said Aid. Hilditch "the order

knowledge at all, and I want to

Aid. Pattullo referred to the difficulty

At the meeting of the council of the
Board of Trade last night the matter of
the strained relations between the city
council and the Grand Trunk Pacific
officials was a special order on the programme of the proceedings. There were
about a dozen members of the board
present and a few not members present
by invitation, and the gathering was
thoroughly representative of the leading
men of the city. There was no heated
discussion but a thorough review of the
facts regarding the assessment of
the Grand Trunk Pacific property so far
as these facts may be said to have leaked
out. And thaare was an entire absence
of personalities all through, though what
was disclosed did seem to reflect upon
the course taken by the city council as
a body.
It had been stated repeatedly by the
members of the council who met President Hays on his last visit here that
the president and the railway officials
had refused to make any proposition.
In flat denial of this was the production
of a letter written by the company last
June in which such propositions were
made, and a further refutations of statements made was found in the declaration
of Aid. Mobley that the matter of the
taxation of the railway company had
been discussed several times by the
aldermen. There were many such points
brought out, and indeed, to most of those
present all the facts brought out were
new and a surprise that they should have
been kept from the public. The result
of the calm discussion was the appointment of a committee of five to confer
with the aldermen and to report at a
general meeting of the board to be held
Monday evening.
The council meeting was held in the
new offices of Messrs. Christiansen and
Brandt, A. J. Morris, president of the
board in the chair. After some routine
council business was disposed of Thomas
Dunn was called upon to introduce the
subject of the railway taxation. He
told about his appointent as a committee
of one at the citizens' meeting held in
the city hall Saturday 'and his seeing
Supperintajident Mehan, the telegrm
that was sent to Mr. Mehan and Mr.
Chamberlain's reply. Under the circumstances these disclosed he thought
it well for the citizens to aid in solving
the difficulty that had arisen and seeing
if it were not possible for the city and
the company to be brought together at
least upon some points, and to discuss
them amicably. He belieyed they all
recognized the fact that the assessment
upon the waterfront property of the
company was very high. Even though
the company had been lax in taking advantage of the court of revision, city
zens did not want to see the company
over-assessed. The city wanted a city
hall site from the company, parks and
so on and now was the time to arrange
(or these matters. If we got from the
company a certain amount of property
which was valuable now and would be
increasing in value we should try to

RUFFLED FEATHERS IN THE COUNCIL CHAMBER
At the city council meeting last night
Aid. Mclntyre rose to ask whether the
city engineer had yet given any report
regarding the grading of Third avenue
as several people had been asking him
about this.
Aid. Lynch informed him that the
city engineer had some alteration of
grade to consider there and that arrangements had not yet been concluded
for presenting the report. Aid. Hilditch
understood that it was a difficulty
regarding sewers that occasioned the
delay. He thought it strange that they
could manage sewers all right on Second
avenue and not on Third. The engineer
was evidently pretty busy or he would
have had the report ready as promised
within a week. It was up to him now to
present it at the earliest possible moment.
Aid. Barrow remarked that enquiries
of this sort could be obviated by the

engineer's  presenting  a   weekly  report
to the council.
'Aid. Pattullo���"Enquiries could also
be obviated at council by members going
occasionally to the city hall for themselves during the day and asking what
they want to know."
Aid. Hilditch admitted this but said
that all the same aldermen individually
could not instruct the engineer regarding
the order in which he undertook his
work.
Aid.  Mclntyre then rose saying "I
do not quite agree with Aid.* Pattullo
Aid. Pattullo seems to think that Third
avenue doesn't matter, I see no reason
myself why there should be any delay
at all. The people on Third avenue
should know what is being done. Buildings to be erected on Third avenue are
being kept back because the grade is
not settled. It is not because I happen
to live myself on Third avenue that I
draw attention to this, " he said "but
simply in order that the people who want
to build may get on."
Aid. Pattullo.���"I want to say to Aid.
Mclntyre that I am no more interested
in First avenue than I am in Third.
Dr. Mclntyre is taking up exactly the
same stand as he was doing the other
night, and I object to his attributing

Victoria, Sept. 4.���"It is stated in
Vancouver that Messrs. Mackenzie &
Mann have definitely decided to enter
the Pacific trade, and that with this end
in view they will put on the route next
year two new boats, to be named Dukes,
now building in Great B itain. The new
vessels will be run from Vancouver to
Stewart, calling at Victoria, and possibly at Seattle."
The above is from the Pacific Coast
notes of Shipping Illustrated, of New
York. Nothing is known here in this
regard, although it is generally considered
that the general scheme of development
undertaken on this coast by the magnates
of the Canadian Northern railroad
includes the establishment of a coasting
service on the British Columbia coast
and a car-ferry service between Victoria
and the mainland.
Recent arrivals from Stewart, at the
head of Portland Canal, state that
engineers of the Canadian Northern
railroad company are at work in the
divide between the valleys of the Bear
and the Naas locating the easiest route
for a railroad through to the rich valleys of the Naas and Peace and eastward to join with the transcontinental
line under construction by the well
known Canadian railroad builders. At
present a line of railroad known as
the Portland Canal Short Ine is under

1 construction, reaching from Stewart to
the vicinity of the divide, tapping the
rich mining districts of Portland canal,
and it is generally anticipated at Stewart that this railroad will ultimately
be extended beyond the divide to
become part of a great transcontinental
line, which will make Stewart the next
great port of the northern coast. The
situation of the northern port offers
every advantage in this respect.
In view of this anticipated development an announcement that a line
of coasting steamers will be established
on the British Columbia coast between
Victoria, Vancouver and Seattle to
Stewart and Prince Rupert, similar
to the line operated by the Grand Trunk
Pacific. In fact, it is confidently expected by the shipping men that a line
flying the C. N. R. flag will be in
operation before many years.
London, Sept. 4.���When Keir Har-
die grudgingly apologized in the house
of commons for his attack on the Queen-
Mother and his misstatement that $250,-
000 was to be spent on her residence,
he said, "I should be sorry if any words
of mine gave offense to the royal lady."
In spite of this he made a still more
gross and vehement attack on Queen
Alexandra in a speech at the Durham
miner's festival last Saturday.
"A number of widows were created by
the Whitehaven disaster," he said, "and
the country is being asked to subscribe
to pay them a few shillings weekly to
keep them alive. A few days before
that disaster another widow was created
by the death of King Edward. What
happened in her case?
"They didn't send the hat round begging to pay Queen Alexandra a few
pounds a year. The house of commons
voted her $350,000 a year so long as
she lived.
"Not one penny for the widows of
the colliers whose lives had been sacrificed in building up the wealth of the
country, but $350,000 a year to the
widow of the king. I do not care what
services King Edward rendered to the
State, they were not a whit greater or
more honestly given than the services
of the colliers who lie entombed in the
pit at White haven."
PRINCE RUPERT'S TWO WARDS
The Boundary Line Between Them
Described
Whole Hay's  Correspondence
Three letters, comprising the correspondence between President Hays and
Mayor Stork were given out for publication today. Owing to their length
and the late hour received their publication by the Optimist has to be postponed until tomorrow.
Since the Ward by-law has passed its
third reading citizens will naturally be
enquiring which ward they are likely
to be in. Prince Rupert is to be divided
into two wards, Ward 1 and Ward 2.
The line commences at a point where
the centre line of 6th street proceeding in
a northwesterly direction intersects the
line of high water mark, thence along
said centre line in a south easterly
direction to its intersection with the
centre line of Second avenue; thence
along said centre line of Second avenue
in a north easterly direction to its intersection with the centre line of Fourth
street; thence south easterly along said
centre line of the fourth street and the
centre line of Fulton street to its intersection with the centre line of Eighth
avenue. Thence southerly along the
said centre line of Eighth avenue to its
intersection with the centre lines of
Ninth avenue and Comox avenue.
Thence south westerly along the centre
i line of Comox avenue to a point where
I the centre line of the lane between
blocks 42 and 43 Section 5 proceeding
north westerly, intersects said centre
line of Comox avenue. Thence south
easterly along said centre line of lane
to its intersection with the south easterly
boundary of the lane lying south easterly
of block 43. Thence astronomic south,
46 degrees 13 minutes east a distance
of 2910 feet more or less to the intersection of this line with the south eaat
boundary of the City of Prince Rupert as
described in the act of incorporation.
Ward one is west of this boundary
line and will have three representatives
in council. Ward two is east of the
boundary line, and will be represented by
five aldermen. T II E

DECEIVED THE CITIZENS
Every day is bringing forth more evidence that the Optimist was justified in
calling public attention to the fact that the city council were having star chamber
sessions over the Hays' correspondence. When the dead-lock between the company
and the council was reached the Mayor and aldermen blamed the company for
having no proposition, yet when the correspondence of last June is shown up it
proves the statement to be wrong. The citizens have been deceived for no good
purpose, The council cannot even offer the excuse of diplomatic relationship
because there has been no diplomacy. The city council assumed that they knew
public opinion on the question and possibly allowed their antagonism to the late
assessor to warp their judgment.
If the present action on the part of the business men results in a conference
between the parties it will be a very satisfactory outcome to what is now an unfortunate breach of good feeling between the city and the company, but whatever
the outcome the city council should profit by the experience that the public are
entitled to be let in on all documents relating to public affairs. The secrecy which
they have maintained in regard to the assessment correpondence not only reflects
upon themselves but has placed the company in a false position in the eyes of the
citizens. The showing up of the communications proves that the Mayor and some
of the aldermen deceived the citizens in order to justify themselves.

insinuating  that  I   have   personal   interests to serve."
Aid. Mclntyre.���"Aid. Pattullo has
just made a remark that other aldermen
might save trouble by coming to the
City Hall during the day to find out
what they want to know. I had no intention at all of insinuating any personal
motives against Aid. Pattullo. I don't
imply that Aid.' Pattullo is in any way
rajsponsible for the delay regarding Third
avenue, and I don't see why Aid. Pattullo should take the onus upon himself. The fact that Aid. Pattullo owns
property on First and Second avenues
does not effect the matter. Though I
haven't brought up so many by-laws
aad taken up so much of the council's time
as Aid. Pattullo, I still stand for a square
deal and fair play all round and I intend
to stand so while I remain a member of
this council."
Aid. Mclntyre sat down and for a
moment it looked as if trouble were
brewing. Then Aid. Lynch rising rapidly
endeavored to keep the discussion to
the point by moving that the engineer!
should report stating how long it would
take to get matters ready for grading'
Third avenue. If necessary the city
engineer should have an assistant he
thought considering the evident burden
of work he had to cope with. Aid.
Barrow said that if Aid. Lynch would
make his motion cover a weekly report
on works in general from the engineer
he would second it.
Aid Pattullo had meanwhile sat silent
his face growing darker. He was not
disposed to pass over Dr. Mclntyre's
remarks without comment. He said
"I don't see why aldermen should rise
in their chairs and make attacks on
other aldermen, and then say that they
meant no insinuation. Even if I may have
been a little more energetic than others
in the city's interests, I fail to see why
I should be criticised for it" he said.
"In any case " he concluded "I intend
to go right ahead in defiance of such
insinuations and  criticism."
Aid. Hilditch said he did not see why
the city engineer should bear the brunt
Of this matter without having an oppor-
tunity to clear himself.    "I sympathise ;
with Aid. Pattullo" he went on "and!
for my own part as long as I remain ;
a  member of council  I  mean to go
Straight ahead and do what I consider j
my duty no matter who stands against
me."
At this the mayor intervened.   "I am
Very sorry indeed" he said "that these
personalities should pass across the
aldermanic table." He was inclined to
sympathise with Aid. Pattullo and said
"I think it entirely out of order to impute favouritism on the part of any
alderman regarding the works on the
streets." The mayor went on to defend
the city engineer against any suggestion that he was not doing his utmost
to get the works forward, and said it
was possible to take up an engineer's
whole time by setting him to write reports.
Aid. Hilditch.-"Couldn't his assistant be empowered to sign reports?
Why use a $5000 a year man for writing
reports?"
Aid. Naden remined the council that
they would always have to hold the city
engineer responsible for any error in a
report no matter who signed it. He went
on to say "I appreciate the mayor's
remarks regarding personalities passing
in council and I believe that according
to the Procedure By-law the mayor
is empowered to ask any member of
council indulging in personalities or
attributing motives to retire."
The mayor���"If that is so I shall
certainly use the privilege."
Aid. Mclntyre.���"Since I believe I
am considered the guilty party I will
suggest to the mayor the necessity of
employing a stenographer if he is to use
this power, in order to ensure a correct
record being kept of any remarks made.
I do not think," he said in conclusion,
"that I have in anyway attributed motive
tonight to any alderman."
The matter ended there, the motion
that the engineer be asked to submit
a report weekly on the state of the works
being carried.

treat the company in a friendly spirit
and not, by an unfriendly bearing keep
back the improvements the company
was ready to make.   He knew that the j i\^,l^^mZ^J^
dry dock proposition was ready, that the! others took par,   Vaulted fn The
in each, stating that it amounted to
thousands of dollars per front foot and
practically seven millions of dollars
on the waterfront property.
This showed there was some reason
for the citizens taking the matter up
The Canadian Pacific was taxed nothing
like that in Vancouver. He thought
citizens could materially assist the council
and he trusted some action to that end
would be taken at the general meeting
of the board Monday evening.
Aid. Mobley being invited to speak
said he was not present as a member of
the city council but as a member of the
board of trade and as the latter he would
be pleased to express his views upon the
subject of discussion so far as he was
conversant with it. He had no hesitation
in saying that the city did not want to go
into a fight with the company, as the
matter had been discussed in council
on several occasions and that was the
general view of the matter.
But of course the Grand Trunk was
asking a great deal although they might
be expecting very little. At the meeting
of the mayor and Mr. Tate in Vancouver
they had asked much that the board of
trade and the council would not submit
to. It was a matter of expediency and
he could assure the meeting that the
council was disposed to meet the company in any reasonable way. The Grand
Trunk was too swift. It wanted an
exemption of practically six millions,
and the council felt that it could not
sacrifice its birthright.
Probably the company was not as
much incensed at the action of the
council as some believed. Neither was
the council so very much incensed
against the company. Of course the
railway prople were good bluffers and
the council pretty good at standing ther
hands. The city council was not arbitary,
tt was ready to meet the company halfway
and he was pleased to have the matter
taken up by the board because the
council would in this way obtain the
sentiments of the people, as the council
never intended to take upon themselves
the settlement of the whole ques ion.
He was free to admit that the taxation
of the railway property was too high,
but the only course open to the council
was by petitioning the government to
have it reduced, should this conclusion
be arrived at,
A general discussion then ensued in
which Messrs. Dunn, Mobley, Morris,

Prince Rupert has another new business

president of the company, referred to a " ,s "��� """'    '"''-' 	
meeting with the mayor Alderman
Barrow and himself in Vancouver three
days previously at which Mr. Hays had
pointed out that the railway assessment was too high, and he suggested
that after discussing it in council the
council appoint a committee of three to
talk it over with an official of the railway
company in the hope of arriving at an
amical settlement.
The letter went on to state what had
been done in thia regard by the city of
Fort William, which had granted the
company a subsidy of $300,000 and an
exemption of taxation for fifteen years
Edmonton had done practically the same
thing.
Having read the whole of the letter
Mr. Dunn turned back to quote the
friendly words:: "Might I suggest that a
delegation of three be appointed, after
you have discussed the matter in council,
to meet an officer of this company."
Mr. Dunn said upon this: "I think that
shows there was an opening for negotiation then and I think there is an
opening now." He then declared his
belief that the assessment on the railway property was simply ridiculously
high and quoted 6500 feet of the waterfront being taxed for three millions as
an instance. On the map he pointed out
the various assessments, giving the figures

A Joint Endowment Policy is similar
to an Ordinary Endowment Policy, only
that it is on the lives of two peisons
instead of on one. This "Joint" idea
was first applied to partners in business
enterprises, but quite recently it
been taken advantage of by husband
and wife for the investment of their
savings and the protection of the home.
This combination costs much less
than two separate polices���to illustrate,
a regular Endowment policy on ONE
life for $1000, participating in profits
in the SUN LIFE OF CANADA, at
age 30, calls for an annual premium of
$49.40; a Joint Endowment on TWO
lives both of the same age, costs onlv
$55.85-a difference of $6.45. The wife
who enters into this Joint Endowment
with her husband therefore gets the
protection of $1000 for $6.45 a year, ot
an additional payment of less than two
cents a day. Should either die the
amount of assurance is paid to whoever
is named in the policy as beneficial}
Should both survive the Endowmeri*.
period they then get the sum assured
with profits added.
When we recommend Endowment
Life Assurance, we do so with the utmost confidence, for it has long ago
passed the stage of experiment,
has made good its claims. The Sun
Life Assurance Company of Canada has
paid millions of dollars in matured endowments and the universal testimony
of its policy holders is that it is one i'
the best ways to accumulate money
that would otherwise be spent on odds
and ends.
A Strong Feature
A strong feature of Endowment assurance is that it compels saving. Too
many begin to save and grow weary at
the slowness and quit. The Endowment policy insists on its premium deposits being made, and in this way
trains the assured to save systematic-
aly.
Why h Is Better Than a .Savings Bank
The many small balances in our Savings Banks are evidence that people
need assistance in the matter of saving
money. The thing we are compelled to
do we do, but the thing that is optional
13 often left undone. Even although
the Savings Bank way of saving were
persisted in, it falls short of Endow-
mant Assurance, inasmuch as the estate, in the event of death, is only
representedjby the amount of deposit,
with interest, whereas the Endowment
policy is worth to the estate the full
face value of the policy the moment
the first payment has been made.
Looks After Old Age
, Endowment assurance, by thus forcing the saving of money, is more particularly seen to be a blessing when the
years have passed and brought with
them declining strength. It is then
that the result of the efforts of early
saving is appreciated.
It is sad to be unprovided for in old
age.
The possessor of an Endowment policy is laying up in his productive years
tor the time when such help will b��
urgently needed.
A Word About the Company
The Sun Life Assurance Company of
Canada is one the strong financial institutions of Canada. The Company
commenced business in 1872, and has
had a marvellous record of steady
growth. It is under the direct supervision of the Government of Canada,
and reports to the British Board of
trade and many Insurance Depart
ments pf the United States and othei
them fl8' and enioys the confidence ��'

the highest terms of the liberal treat
ment accorded them.
The Company is Noted as a Profit
paying Company
. The profitable character of the bui
,nel��of the Sun Life of Canada, ha
enabled dividends to be declared to th

which has given great satisfaction, i"1

SCHOOL   TEACHER    LEES    HAS
QUITE   AN   EXPERIENCE
Bear Objected to Being Shot and
He Chawed Up The School
Teacher's Head and Face In a Way
To Make Many Stitches Necessary.
The frog who "Would a wooing go'*
faced little worse than the sport who
woud a hunting go in Bruin's own
domain.
If anyone is entitled to a vacation
of his own choice, it certainly is the
school teacher who has faithfully filled
his term in the monotonous routine of
his calling; so nobody will grudge Mr
R. Lees of the McKenzie school at Bella
Coola his exciting adventure.
Accompanied by his friend Marvin,
Lees started out for the head waters of
the Stillwater some sixty miles up the
Bella Coola valley on the Ootsa Lake
Trail. Being promised the sight of his
first bear, Lees was not disappointed by
hearing the tramp of some heavy animal
in the bush and seeing in very truth a
brown bear step out on the trail in front
of him. Marvin a true sportsman, then
said "Now I have found you the bear
you can shoot him." Lees at once
began pumping a shell from the "Magazine," but with so little gusto that it
struck half way, and the rifle locked.
The bear evidently took in the situation
at once.and approached the school teacher
in true cinnamon fashion, who forgot
the glory of conquest and took for the
tall timber.
Marvin now got his Manlicher to work
and sent a bullet crashing through the
bear's shoulders, increasing his rage ten
fold thereby. When another struck him
on the hind quarters he was after his
quarry at a two-forty gait, but the record was broken for a straight dash
from trail to tree by Mr. Lees. But just
at the critical moment his foot caught
and he landed head first in a brush pile.
Another bullet at this moment caught
bruin a fair broadside, and realizing
that time was short he jumped savagely
on the prostrate school teacher and commenced his last meal on his head and
face.
Marvin dare not fife instantly at the
mass of writhing limbs he saw, but in a
second or two was on the spot and putting
���Ihe rifle close to the bear's head ended the
struggle. Lees arrived two days later
at the Bella Coola hospital where Dr.
Jamieson put fifty stitches in his face
and said he should put in a hundred more
to make a real good job of it,

Six Thousand a Year and All Costs
Coming to City
Vancouver, Sep. 4.���The agreement
between the new city solicitor and the
city was gone into at a private meeting
of the council last night. The city
solicitor is to get $6,000 per year, have
supervision over the police court cases
although a special barrister will assist
in the actual court work, and will have
an assistant in the city hall offices. He
will not take up the unfinished cases in
the courts, as these are to be concluded
by the firm of Cowan, Macdonald &
Parkes. If extra counsel are secured the
city is to pay for'them and the new
city solicitor is to have all costs which
may be secured, as the city has no right
to them under its charter.

BUILDING OF
EIGHT ACRES
NEW   PASSENGER   DEPOT   JUST
OPENED   IN   NEW   YORK
Large Building Ever Constructed at
Ono Time In History of World.���
As a Railway Station It is Unique
In Size and Design.
New York. Sep. 3.���The largest
building in the world ever built at one
time, the Pennsylvania railroad station
in this ci y, has just been completed
and declared officially open. If has
also been announced in an official
pamphlet distributed by the railroad
company that train service will be in-
augerated  September  8.
According to the company's official
statement "the Pennsylvania station covers more territory than any other building ever constructed at one time in the
history of the world. The Vatican, the
Tuileries, the St. Peterburg Winter
Palace, are larger buildings, but they
have been centuries in their construction. The Pennsylvania station is
unique, covering as it does eight acre
of ground, with exterior walls extending approximately one half of a mile,
all told, and having been erected in less
than six years' time.
Built after the Roman Doric style
of architecture, the New York station
of the Pennsylvania railroad covers
the entire area bounded by Seventh
and Eighth avenues and Thirty-first
and Thirty-third streets. The depth of
the property on both streets is 799
feet 11 1-2 inches, and the length of
the building is 788 feet 9 inches, thus
allowing for extra-wide sidewalks on
both side streets and avenues. The
walls extend 430 feet 6 inches from
Thirty-first street to Thirty-third street,
the Seventh avenue facade signalizing
the main entrance.
The main body of the building approximates in height the Bourse of
Paris, reaching 76 feet above the street
level. With entrances through the two
corners of the station on Seventh avenue there are carriage drives, each
about 63 feet wide, or almost twice the
width of a standard New York City
street, fronted by double columns and
pediments. The narrowest opening between the columns is practically equal
in width to the arched driveways in
the Louvre, through which the omnibuses of Paris pass.

���Look Out For  Hard Winter
Old-timers say that there is every
indication of a cold winter and they
have many reasons for their theory.
The bush rats are boring deep holes.
Bears are already beginning to dig
out trees for their long sleep. Gophers have made lor the underground.
Squirrels and chipmunks have been
unusually industrious all summer long.
They say it will be the coldest winter
for years, and there appears to be harmony amongst the old-timers in this
opinion, says the Nicola Valley News.

well as of stature. Constable McKeowen I
told of the arrest of Magsin at midnight,
eaught red handed with the bricks in a |
bag. Magsin explained thv.t he wanted
the bricks "to beeld one leetle stove."
He had taken them from a building
which had been bumed near the waterfront, and though Magistrate McMullen
reserved sentence until the afternoon,
Magsin will probably get off light.
His admission that he took the bricks
without leave amounts of course to a

About six o'clock yesterday afternoon
while the two horse hack belonging to
Messrs. Sykes and Cook was turning
at the foot of Sixth street in the space
at present rather restricted owing to
sewer work in progress there, a light
wagon belonging to P. Burns came along
at a smart space from the Centre street
direction, and in passing the hack caught
the hind wheel heavily. The spokes
snapped all around and the tyre and
wheel rim fell away fairly wrecked while
the carriage body tilted on to the street.
J. T. Cook who was driving the hack
held in his horses which were startled
by the shock, and the team then stood
quiet while he ascertained the extent
of the damage done. A crowd gathered
and in a few minutes with the aid of a
long plank the hack was got in condition
to be drawn off the street and taken
home for repairs. The broken wheel
spokes strewed the street but were
gathered up later perhaps by persons
anxious to secure authentic portions of
Prince Rupert's first hackney coach
as souvenir.
